THE TIES THAT BIND:

Russia Renewed Unused Trump Trademarks in 2016 (MIKE McINTIRE, JUNE 18, 2017, NY Times)

Last year, while hacking Democrats' emails and working to undermine the American presidential election, the Russian government also granted extensions to six trademarks for Mr. Trump that had been set to expire. The Trump trademarks, originally obtained between 1996 and 2007 for hotels and branding deals that never materialized, each had terms that were coming to an end in 2016.
